Doot doot doot-doot doot
Doot doot doot-doot doot
Doot doot doot-doot doot
Doot doot doot-doot doot

Well she first caught my eye a runnin' round in shorts
But she never bothered with her hair
Just a barefooted chick with all skinned up knees
Yeah she didn't care what she'd wear
(All dressed up for school)

Dressed up for school, ooo what a turn on
Dressed up for school, ooo what a turn on
Dressed up for school, ooo what a turn on
All dressed up for school

All summer long she had a crush on me
But I just couldn't care at all
But new to school threads really did it for me
Yeah she's turned into a doll
(All dressed up for school)

Dressed up for school, ooo what a turn on
Dressed up for school, ooo what a turn on
Dressed up for school, ooo what a turn on
All dressed up for school
Weah

Goes out every night 'cause she's a sharp little doll
And the guys can't leave her alone
Now she hardly finds the time to talk to me
She's not the little girl I've always known
(All dressed up for school)

Dressed up for school, ooo what a turn on
Dressed up for school, ooo what a turn on
Dressed up for school, ooo what a turn on
All dressed up for school

Doot doot doot-doot doot
Doot doot doot-doot doot
Doot doot doot-doot doot
Doot doot doot-doot doot

    General CommentRecorded in 1964, this was about the most risque song ever recorded by the Beach Boys in their halcyon youth of the 1960's. It remained unreleased until 1990, when Capitol Records finally decided to do the right thing and release all of the BB's Capitol releases on CD, two albums per (except for "Pet Sounds", for which a separate CD with bonus tracks was released). This song was featured as a bonus track on the "Little Deuce Coupe"/"All Summer Long" twofer CD and is one of the best Beach Boys songs never to be a hit single. This song rocks! Although unreleased for 25 years after it was written, a very similar melody was used for the verse in 1972's "Marcella".

    General CommentLike has been said, an excellent song for a 'lost' record. It sounds as good as any other single from the Beach Boys at this time. And yeah, it's a little creepy, but more in a fun and goofy way. Not a 'best of the best' but still good, esp. for big fans.

    General CommentThis song is quite dirty for its time...

    The melody of the verse was recycled for I've Just Got My Pay, the chorus of I Just Got My Pay was recycled for Marcella.
